As a designer I know that design is much too important to be left in the hands of designers.

 

Without any doubt, steampunk is the coolest kid in the science fiction slash fantasy slash fashion slash slasher made up world.. it is where the geeks get their groove and where the nerds find their visual mechanical contraption satisfaction.

 

 

You cant sell news stories that have data and cautious predictions. Where is the panic? Where is the impending doom? C'mon people , give me something to work with here…

Without any doubt, steampunk is the coolest kid in the science fiction slash fantasy slash fashion slash slasher made up world.. it is where the geeks get their groove and where the nerds find their visual mechanical contraption satisfaction.

It is not clear what came first, the fashion or the contraption, but it seems they grew together through the years, and in the plastic boring world of the mid eighties took a serious turn to the better and became the  conceptual and visual illegitimate bastard son to the polished metal of sci fi and the velvet gowns of the fantasy world

Like geeks often do, the steampunk crowd is taking itself very  seriously which is kind of entertaining, but this dedication does produce some amazing works of delicate craftsmanship and design ingenuity. The level of details and even the techniques used to emulate antique working methods are nothing less than flabbergasting, with research on chemical reactions of metals, working tools of surgeons and sub-acqua divers and more history of the gadgetry of the world than you could imagine.

 
I just think we’re living in a time of massive, amazing change, like the Industrial Revolution on acid.” – Kelly Lynch
 

There is something absolutely charming about obsessive people, and when they create such beautiful interesting metal mutations and wood wonderthingies, you can only admire their prowess and their talents, both on the technical and the artistic levels.

 
  As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man.”Ernst Fischer
 

Steampunk as a fashion is being applied to almost any possible item the human mind can think of. Shoes, cloths, hats, glasses, watches, jewelry, lamps, cellphones, ipads, cameras, laptops, desktops, musical instruments, light sockets, earphones, dashboards, stereos, Xboxes , electric juicers and I am sure there is at least one or two homemade steampunk vibrators out there.

And if nothing else, steampunk culture is to be thanked for bringing us something we never knew we cant live without. 19th century steampunk mechanical zombies. What else could you ask for?
 
it has come to my attention that SOMEONE on the internet is saying that my fictional 19th century zombies are NOT SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND. Naturally, I am crushed.

To think, IF ONLY I’d consulted with a zombologist or two before sitting down to write, I could’ve avoided ALL THIS EMBARRASSMENT."
